My Family

Here we are! I’m married to Holly (née Olsen). Our children are Heidi, Steven, one who wishes to remain nameless, and Caroline. Heidi has two children (our grandchildren), Skyler and Sage. We also have various pets in our family.

My father passed away in 2002. Here is a brief, virtual memorial to him, but he lives on in our memories and in the memories and lives of all whom he touched.

Family Picture Here are Holly and I at Lindos Village in Rhodes, Greece.
Family Picture Three of our four children at an airport.
Family Picture Caroline and Holly in Egypt before the Sphinx. This was the trip on which their cruise ship caught fire, abruptly ending the trip shortly after this picture was taken. Quite an adventure, in more ways than one.

Here are some pictures of Holly. In the leftmost, she's on a ship at sea. The next picture is of her on a hill overlooking a bay in French Polynesia (Tahiti). The third picture is her on a riverboat on the Sacramento River. The next one shows Holly in her garden, with a very happy Scout trotting over to her. The second from the right is her and our daughter Caroline holding our dog Scout and cat Puff. The rightmost shows Holly before the library at Ephesus, which we visited when I was attending the PETRA conference in Samos. Fitting, as she is on the Library Advisory Board for Yolo County.

Here are some pictures of Heidi. She’s with Holly in the second picture, is holding Skyler and Sage in the second to right picture, and in the last picture she is with them at the Sacramento Zoo (Sage later fed a giraffe — they have long tongues).

Here are some pictures of Steven. The first one is with his girlfriend and he is wearing his Police Academy uniform. The second one shows him clowning with Skyler and Sage, and the third with Skyler. In the fourth, Skyler is helping him get into the pool.

My third child asked me not to post any pictures in which he was the focus.

Here are some pictures of Caroline. The first picture is Caroline walking at her high school graduation. The second one is her with me at her senior Father-Daughter weekend. The third one is her when she graduated from Willamette University — we’re so proud of her! The fourth one is her at the graduation with Mom (Holly). And the last one shows Caroline playing with her very happy cat Puff.

Here are some pictures of Skyler. He has just eaten something (chocolaty, I think) at a block party in the second. He’s with Sage in the third picture, and wearing his Indiana Jones hat with a Disneyland character towering over him in the fourth.

Here are some pictures of our pets. The first two pictures are of Scout (full name: Springhill’s Leading Lady), our Bearded Collie. In the next-to-last picture, one of our chickens is checking out the yard. The last picture is of the newest addition to our family, a small kitten named Mouse.

One of our cats, Fur, died on December 4, 2011. Here is a brief memorial for him. Puff, another of our cats, died on July 13, 2015. Here is a brief memorial for her. Both are missed by everyone—including their friends, the other pets.

Well, that’s us! Thanks for visiting.
